Have an opinion on transit in Wilmington?

HOW CAN TRANSIT IN WILMINGTON BE IMPROVED? – The Wilmington Initiatives partners, including the City of Wilmington, DelDOT, DART First State, New Castle County, and WILMAPCO are trying to answer that through the Wilmington’s Transit Future Project. To help the agencies better understand which alternatives would best serve transit riders, local business owners, and residents, an Open House Public Workshop is being held on Wednesday, October 16 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., at the Double Tree Hotel, at 8th and King Streets.

The purpose of the workshop is to seek public input on the transit recommendations of the State Smart Transportation Initiative (SSTI) Study and previous work done by the Wilmington Initiatives. The project’s goal is to identify and prioritize options and develop an implementation plan to move forward. The SSTI Study provided recommendations on circulation alternatives, identified the need for a new downtown transit center, and discussed several programs to improve transit service in Downtown Wilmington. Representatives from the Wilmington Initiatives partners will be available to answer questions, hear input, and address concerns.
